Margaret Rawlings Bust

This large plaster bust of British stage actress Margaret Rawlings (1936) by Frank Dobson RA has been donated to the National Portrait Gallery in London. It's a rough-and-ready sculpture which looks as though it has been painted to simulate verdigris on bronze. Not only was Margaret Rawlings a leading light in her day, but also she co-founded the British Actors' Equity Association and was eventually elected its Vice President. Her bust is now on display in The National Portrait Gallery, Room 31, First Floor (CLICK).
